What is Green Cross?

The difference between the Green Cross and the Red Cross.


Green Cross is a symbol of nature and life. To represent life in a spiritual sense there is no more suitable colour than green. Generally today, a green cross has a secular meaning and the most common use is health care. In particular, the green cross represents First Aid.

The Red Cross of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies is an emblem protected under the Geneva Conventions Act and cannot be used without permission. Contrary to popular belief, the Red Cross is not a public-domain First Aid symbol.

The International Standards Organization recommends that a white cross on green background is used as a First Aid symbol. A variation is a green cross on white field, recommended by ISO, it is still widely recognized as a first aid symbol.

In Germany, for example, is the Deutsches Grunes Kreuz e.V. (German Green Cross) was founded in 1948. It does not restrict itself to human health, but also has concern for the protection of animals and plants.

In Korea is the headquarters of the Green Cross Corp, named as such since 1971, and whose main business is pharmaceuticals.

In Japan a flag with a green cross (midori-juji) on a white field is frequently flown on construction sites and factories to encourage workers to remember health and safety. It also appears on badges and arm bands for the same purpose and is occasionally seen as a cross-within-a-cross.

Pneumonia - What is? Symptoms! Prevention! Treatment!

Pneumonia lightbox[Pneumonia]Pneumonia


Pneumonia is an inflammatory condition of one or both lungs, which is usually caused by infection of viruses (such as the flu virus) or bacteria (the most common cause is a type of bacteria called Streptococcus pneumoniae) and less commonly other microorganisms (fungi), certain drugs and other conditions such as autoimmune diseases. This inflammation causes the microscopic air sacs known as alveoli inside lungs to fill with fluid. This makes it harder for the lungs to work properly.

In winter the number of cases of pneumonia rises. This is because of infection spreading from person to person, and also because other infections are more common in the winter, such as influenza (flu). An infection with flu can lower your immune system, increasing your risk of picking up pneumonia.




The most common symptoms of pneumonia are:

  • Cough (with mucus (sputum) from lungs, which may be rusty or green or tinged with blood);
  • Fever;
  • Fast breathing and feeling short of breath;
  • Shaking and "teeth-chattering" chills;
  • Chest pain that often feels worse when you cough or breathe in;
  • Fast heartbeat;
  • Feeling very tired or very weak;
  • Nausea and vomiting;
  • Diarrhea.


There are a number of steps you can take to help prevent getting pneumonia.

  • Stop smoking. You're more likely to get pneumonia if you smoke.
  • Avoid people who have infections that sometimes lead to pneumonia.
  • Stay away from people who have colds, the flu, or other respiratory tract infections.
  • If you haven't had measles or chickenpox or if you didn't get vaccines against these diseases, avoid people who have them.
  • Wash your hands This helps prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria that may cause pneumonia.

Treatment of pneumonia consists of oral antibiotics, rest, simple analgesics, and fluids usually suffice for complete resolution. However, those with other medical conditions, the elderly, or those with significant trouble breathing may require more advanced care. If the symptoms worsen, the pneumonia does not improve with home treatment, or complications occur, hospitalization may be required.

Antibiotics such as amoxicillin, doxycycline (Doxyderma), clarithromycin, azithromycin (Zitara) or erythromycin (Eritromicine) improve outcomes in those with bacterial pneumonia. Antibiotic choice depends initially on the characteristics of the person affected, such as age, underlying health, and the location the infection was acquired.

Typical antibiotics will not work for viral pneumonia; sometimes, however, your doctor may use antiviral medication. Viral pneumonia usually improves in 1 to 3 weeks.
